With the mapping of the partition function graphs of the n-vector magnetic model in the n to 0 limit as the self-avoiding walks, the conformational statistics of linear polymers was clearly understood in early seventies. Various models of disordered solids, percolation model in particular, were also established by late seventies. Subsequently, investigations... more...

Econophysicists have recently been quite successful in modelling and analysing various financial systems like trading, banking, stock and other markets. The statistical behaviour of the underlying networks in these systems have also been identified and characterised recently. This book reviews the current econophysics researches in the structure... more...

Successful or not, we all (have to?) go to various markets and participate in their activities. Yet, solittle is understoodabout their functionings. E orts to model various markets are now substantial. Econophysicists have also come up recently with several innovative models and their analyses. This book is a proceedings of the International Workshop... more...
